[Resolved] - Accessing widget data confuses the next setter

Describe the bug:

How do you cause this bug?

Add a widget and a script that references said widget.

Access a widget data value without setting anything. Pulling an example out of a script I have here:

	elseif self.widget.js.data.state ~= 'ready' then
		self.widget.js.data.state = 'ready'

The initial call to self.widget.js.data.state will evaluate properly. However, the second call that sets the value will have an incorrect data path, throwing the error.

[Client] [Display] Trying to modify binding data.state.data.state with value ready, but no binding with that path exists

Additionally, if you continue to access to data binding without setting it, the path that’s finally used when calling the setter will continue to append paths. So you could end up with something like data.state.data.state.data.state.data.state.data.state, etc.
